Sum­ming up, so on all fronts. There­fore, today we are look­ing not just at some area of ​​tech­nol­o­gy, not just at the type of devices, but at every­thing that inter­est­ed us in 2019. Which of the gad­gets real­ly deserve the atten­tion of the pub­lic, and which ones do we have high hopes for? We’ll talk about this.

AirPods Pro

What is the mer­it of these head­phones? In pop­u­lar­i­ty? Not real­ly, in fact, not every­one can afford them. Still, this device received the most pre­mi­um price tag. But, nev­er­the­less, the head­phones man­aged to impress not only mil­lions of users, but also hun­dreds of man­u­fac­tur­ers. We can say for sure that these head­phones will copy. Air­Pods Pro appeared in Sep­tem­ber of this year, and includ­ed sev­er­al sig­nif­i­cant and, one might say, fun­da­men­tal­ly impor­tant updates. For exam­ple, active noise reduc­tion, con­nec­tion speed, equal­iz­er, mois­ture resis­tance. Today, Air­Pods Pro are, with­out a doubt, one of the best head­phones on the mar­ket, both among wire­less and among those famil­iar to us. Plus, Apple final­ly took care of the size of the head­phones, includ­ing sev­er­al inter­change­able pairs of ear pads in the kit. So Air­Pods Pro deserved­ly and right­ful­ly made it to the list of the best.

Mophie Wireless Charger

Wire­less charg­ing tech­nol­o­gy has appeared rapid­ly, and is not going to dis­ap­pear any­where. So far, it has­n’t become a require­ment for all smart­phones, and we don’t par­tic­u­lar­ly expect it to hap­pen any­time soon. But a step for­ward has already been made, and this par­tic­u­lar charg­er has a spe­cial role in this. It is in it that Qi tech­nol­o­gy is brought to per­fec­tion. This device pro­vides 7.5W of fast charg­ing, the sur­face is equipped with an anti-slip coat­ing, which is espe­cial­ly impor­tant in an age when smart­phones get glass cas­es. And the cable for charg­ing the device itself is also includ­ed. So you have every­thing you need right out of the box, and charg­ing is thought out tak­ing into account the small­est details that can make a dif­fer­ence. A lit­tle less atten­tion is paid to excess­es, but prac­ti­cal­i­ty is real­ly invalu­able.

Mac Pro

The news of Apple’s lat­est and most advanced desk­top com­put­er took every­one by sur­prise. Not with­out rea­son, because it costs much more than many can afford. But we are not look­ing at the price, but at the char­ac­ter­is­tics. And in this regard, the new pop­py has its unde­ni­able advan­tages. This is not a gam­ing or stu­dent com­put­er. It is intend­ed for such tasks as, for exam­ple, film pro­cess­ing. Full pro­fes­sion­al films.

It received a stain­less steel and alu­minum case, while it allows for improve­ments and cus­tomiza­tion. Well, prob­a­bly, it doesn’t even make sense to say that the com­put­er is real­ly pow­er­ful. It received 28 cores and an Intel Xeon proces­sor. Yes, this is a seri­ous pro­fes­sion­al device, which is not yet avail­able to every­one. But, if one thing remains unchanged, it is the move­ment of tech­nol­o­gy for­ward at a tremen­dous speed. So we can say for sure that very soon such pow­er will become the stan­dard. And oth­er devices will fol­low the suc­cess of the new Mac Pro.

Google Pixel 3a

The third gen­er­a­tion of Google smart­phones went on sale last year, and in May 2019, just before the release of the fourth series, the Google Pix­el 3a and 3a XL appeared. How­ev­er, the smart­phone did not remain in the shad­ow of the new prod­ucts at all. It was sin­gled out for its rel­a­tive­ly bud­get cost, and a phe­nom­e­nal cam­era. All this on pure Android.

With this smart­phone, you can also get the Night Sight mode, beloved by mobile pho­tog­ra­phers, which in itself is one of the best inno­va­tions of this year. The por­trait mode is also impres­sive, pro­duc­ing a smart and neat­ly blurred back­ground that makes pho­tos look very nat­ur­al. This is the mer­it of the AI ​​sys­tem, which takes sev­er­al pic­tures, com­bin­ing them into one.

Google Pix­el 3a com­bines moder­ni­ty, the lat­est tech­nol­o­gy, and an afford­able price. So among the more advanced and advanced smart­phones, we still decid­ed to choose it. Although it has not received a fash­ion­able design, it notice­ably out­per­forms numer­ous com­peti­tors in terms of func­tion­al­i­ty.

Mi Band 4

Xiao­mi has man­aged to con­tin­ue the phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess of its own series of Mi Band fit­ness bracelets and, for the fourth time, they have released a device that com­bines max­i­mum func­tions and an afford­able price. Char­ac­ter­is­tics, as always, meet all user require­ments. On the one hand, the track­er has received enough func­tions that are typ­i­cal for smart watch­es. These are both noti­fi­ca­tions and mes­sages. On the oth­er hand, Mi Band is a capa­ble fit­ness track­er with var­i­ous sen­sors that allow you to track read­ings as accu­rate­ly as pos­si­ble. And that is why users pre­fer this watch to oth­ers. A sep­a­rate plus, an inno­va­tion for the Mi Band series, is a col­or dis­play with cus­tom dial set­tings.

All in all, it can’t be said that this watch brought some­thing rev­o­lu­tion­ary to our ideas about fit­ness track­ers, but it def­i­nite­ly became the most afford­able device with a wide range of fea­tures, which led to the fact that we chose Xiao­mi Mi Band 4 for the list. the best devices.

Nikon Z6

In 2019, there are far more mir­ror­less cam­eras than DSLRs. And one of them, which is right­ful­ly con­sid­ered the best to date, is the Nikon Z6. When cre­at­ing this cam­era, the com­pa­ny clear­ly applied all of its lat­est devel­op­ments, and the result was worth it. Pri­or to its release, the top reviews were most­ly for Sony mir­ror­less cam­eras, but Nikon has man­aged to change that. As a result, the Z6 received a high-res­o­lu­tion viewfind­er, 12 frames per sec­ond burst shoot­ing, a screen with rota­tion, 4K video and five-axis sta­bi­liza­tion. In a word, the cam­era real­ly knows every­thing that is required from a mir­ror­less cam­era. At the same time, it is equal­ly suc­cess­ful­ly able to cope with both pho­tog­ra­phy and video shoot­ing. It is absolute­ly true that its price tag clear­ly can­not be called bud­getary. But among many full-frame alter­na­tives, it is far from the tallest. The cam­era impress­es with its many fea­tures and enhance­ments, and leaves no doubt that it will become the pre­ferred device for many in 2020.

Oculus Quest

Vir­tu­al real­i­ty has appeared, and is not going any­where. Well, among the releas­es of this year, the Ocu­lus Quest hel­met dis­tin­guished itself the most. What is so spe­cial about it? First, this device does not require any­thing else. That’s right, you can enjoy any VR games, and this does not require any­thing extra. Motion track­ing, con­trollers, fin­ger move­ment — all this is imme­di­ate­ly pro­vid­ed. The dis­play has received a large res­o­lu­tion, head­phones are also built-in. The device is pow­ered by a Qual­comm Snap­drag­on 835 mobile proces­sor. It does not sound as pow­er­ful as we would like, but it allows you to play games such as Beat Saber, Moss, etc. The device also has dis­ad­van­tages, for exam­ple, a lim­it­ed library of games. But the fact is that this device opens up tru­ly new pos­si­bil­i­ties. Per­haps, very soon, VR will need noth­ing more than a reg­u­lar hel­met, and this is fun­da­men­tal­ly impor­tant, because so far we have treat­ed the hel­met as an acces­so­ry, not a full-fledged device.

Samsung Galaxy Fold

After the post-release fias­co of the first ver­sion of this smart­phone, many doubt­ed that it would ever final­ly see the light of day. How­ev­er, the neg­a­tive expec­ta­tions did not come true, and the Sam­sung Galaxy Fold still went on sale. This is not to say that this smart­phone has become per­fect. It has enough of its draw­backs, from a very frag­ile dis­play and the inabil­i­ty to use pro­tec­tive glass, to the still high cost. The prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion, per­haps, has not yet been per­fect­ed to per­fec­tion, and users have a lot of com­plaints. How­ev­er, the smart­phone clear­ly lets us know that the tech­nol­o­gy itself exists and is ready to go. While the Galaxy Fold isn’t the only fold­able smart­phone that con­verts into a tablet, it’s still the most famous. And thanks to the first impres­sion, but most­ly, it is the mer­it of the sec­ond attempt. The smart­phone has every oppor­tu­ni­ty to become thin­ner, more com­pact and more durable in the future. There­fore, he makes a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to the world of tech­nol­o­gy.

Of course, 2019 gave us many more dif­fer­ent devices, includ­ing many inter­est­ing items. We have only select­ed those that can play an impor­tant role in the fur­ther move­ment of tech­nol­o­gy for­ward.
